About Me

 Originally from Nebraska in the US, I have moved around quite a lot in recent years. When I was 27, I went to Australia on a year working holiday visa and ended up meeting the man of my dreams, father of my child, my husband Nick Daniel. We got married after knowing each other for only 10 months (I’m sure there were some bets going on at that wedding) making me Holly Daniel. We have now been married for 4 years.

Since marrying my husband we have lived in Nebraska, Puerto Rico, back to Nebraska and now we are back to where it all began, Exmouth, Australia. About a year ago we welcomed our loving and energetic daughter Aneira into our lives. She has changed our lives forever and call me crazy but I have been looking forward to these toddler years.

 It’s been quite a crazy ride to get to where I am today but I must say that being a mom has been the biggest challenge so far. I’m an anxiety ridden, type A, borderline OCD first time mom. So when I first became a stay-at-home-mom I would google everything (I still do). You know when they say “It takes a village…” well I think it’s more like “It takes a lot of googling…”.

I found the easiest way for me to quickly retain information was through the lists I found. And then… DING! A light bulb went off. I should do that. So, when I thought about how I could help others and share my knowledge I knew it’d be like this. I may be living and learning but you can learn from my mistakes.

My husband is always telling me I’m a crazy list lady so why not take it to the next level. I’m here to make it easier to find what other moms are already doing, sharing what I find useful in easy to read lists for all the very busy moms out there who don’t have time to waste.

 I’m learning as I go here and I’d love for you to stay updated! Please subscribe  today so I can send you my weekly posts.
